Mark image as decorative for Bing search engine

Copper Contributor

Hi All.

 

Some images might be as decorative, and normally using alt="" will indicate that. However, Bing reports that the image with the attribute alt="" as "The <img> tag does not have an ALT attribute defined.".

 

As far as I know, the data-decorative="true" can be used to notify Bing crawler that the image is of the decorative type. However, Bing SEO Reports still reports the same issue "The <img> tag does not have an ALT attribute defined.".

 

So, #1 the data-decorative="true"is not working, or #2 updating data in Bing SEO Reports will take some time.

 

Any other suggestion of how to give a signal for Bing crawler that the image is decorative is very welcome.
